THE DEAD DAISIES' awesome live juggernaut is set to storm into North America in August for a dozen prime live dates as part of their "Live & Louder" world tour, in support of their "Live And Louder" album, due on May 19. The trek will kick off in Chicago, Illinois on August 10 and will wrap in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 27. It will be the band's first headline tour in North America, where demand has been steadily building after 2016's third album, "Make Some Noise".
Commented THE DEAD DAISIES lead singer John Corabi: "We're all very excited for our very first North American headline run. We're kicking it all off on August 10th in Chicago and ending it in 'Sin City,' Las Vegas!!! You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we're giving it to you 'Live And Louder' and 'down and dirty' on 'The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017'!!!! See ya on the road, kids!!!"
Before being turned loose on North American audiences, the troops will be fresh from playing some of the most prestigious and high-profile European rock festivals coupled with a series of headline club shows, dates in Japan to then make their long-awaited debut in South America. From South America, it's back to one of the Europe's largest festivals, Woodstock Poland, to be part of a "Concert Inspired By Freedom", which will see the band perform with a 60-piece orchestra.
"Live & Louder" will be available in multiple deluxe formats and perfectly captures the awesome vibe of their supreme, sweat-drenched, roof-raising live sets, recorded on a heady high at the end of an unbelievable 2016. The result, once again mixed by Anthony Focx (AEROSMITH, BAD COMPANY), is an absolute stunner.
Lead guitarist Doug Aldrich has some choice words about the upcoming live album: "'Live & Louder' really helps define THE DEAD DAISIES' sound. Like bands I've been involved with co-producing (WHITESNAKE and DIO), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up. Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go 'Live & Louder' with us this summer!!"
